machen

Meanings

1.
to make, to do
(Germans use "machen" slightly differently than English uses "make". In German, there is always an element of "being productive" to it. On the other hand, it does NOT work well in the sense of "reaching" like for instance "make rent".)
Opposite (closest): lassen

A conversation: “Wie geht’s Andrej? Was macht sein Job?” Why is the answer “Der gefällt ihm sehr gut.” ?? What would be the proper translation of this conversation? Does machen here mean how is the job going for him? Does the macht refer to Andrej or to the job? thanks! Maria
